Excitement and fear at DC watch party

At a college bar in Washington, DC, tensions are running high as results trickle in. Every win for Clinton brings a rapturous applause from the crowd and every percentage point gained for Trump is met with overwhelming boos. People continue to pack into the bar, gathering around TV screens that line the walls.

Kelli Slater from Howard University thinks Clinton has the right experience and is the right candidate for the job. "I don't view this election as voting for a lesser of two evils," she says.

Amira Karim and Marianne Caballero are both economists. Neither can vote - Amira is form Singapore and Marianne is from Venezuela. They say watching this election as outsiders has been "insane".

"The idea that people would even consider someone like Trump is shocking to me," Marianne says.
